One of the major goals of all libraries is to promote the freedom to read, regardless of restrictions. Many are combating the power of censorship for National Banned Books Week.
Banned Books Week is being held Sept. 25 through Oct. 1 and highlights the value of free and open access to information.
The week brings together the entire book community –- librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers of all types – in shared support of the freedom to seek and to express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.
